Files in C++

I know all of you, who tried to learn C++, someday wishes to have a good understanding on Files in C++. But It's not easy to find all that stuff in one place. Today I completed writing a seminar paper on the same topic. Although it's for my collage, and is a work given by my C++ lecturer, I decided to publish it for interested audience. So I uploaded it to my Google Docs account. You can find it here.

But still you may find that it's not so explanatory or there is not so enough examples., etc. But don't worry, I am going to write a series on the same topic. So wait for it. And I guarantee to provide many examples too.

Contact Manager Extended

The program I wrote recently. That I posted here in an early post.
Now I made some changes. That is now you can add as many emails and phone contacts. Also you can add a new email or phone after a contact is created. ie., missing form previous version.
But one ToDo is still not done. It's verifying whether email is correct format.
It can be done another day. But not now.

You can download source here.

My First Python Program

I am very glad today. Because I finally wrote a python program all by myself. I am programming for about 3 years. Of which 2 are using C++ (Old standard and using Turbo C++ IDE ver 3.0 and yet to master Templates and STL. [:-p]) and After starting python using Dive into Python an excellent book by Mark Pilgrim during my 1st year summer vacation, and I only completed Data Structure section. Then I found an excellent Java tutorial by Sang Shin and obtained a certificate by completing First and basic course in Java.
Now I am working with My Friend to develop applications in java. We established a web site already. He started programming when he is in 10, ie. more than 2 years of experience. He has Visual Basic too in his side. Now he is doing with JSP and I am concentrating on Python, Ruby (yet to start) and CSS.

Today My pleasure is that I completed a python program myself. Which is asked to do in 'A byte of Python' by Swaroop.C.H. Which is a command line program; and helps us…

Science: Physics: Animated Wave Diagrams on the Wave Structure of Matter

Science: Physics: Animated Wave Diagrams on the Wave Structure of Matter: ""

Very nice blog with a lot of visualizations.
Do you know that a image or video enhances our interest in subject and what we understand out of theory.
So if you are struggling with waves just have a look.

Java Certification

There is no validity for this course. I mean currently no institution or firms consider this as a qualification. But may be in future they consider so.
This course differs from ordinary course. There is no projects or assignments.
All we want to do is study the material provided by them and submit the home works. We have more than five months of time for that. And in total more than twenty home works.

This course covers Basic of Java or Core Java.
It starts from novice (ie., loops and declaring variables too ) and advances from there. This covers swing, File handling, Little bit RMI and client/server networking, Threads, Java Beans etc. etc. ...

The course is maintained and developed by Mr. Sang Shin. Also there are many to help him. We get support from class mailing list. And if we complete the course successfully, we also get a certificate like above one that get to me.
There are other courses too. For example Java Performance tuning, Java EE, Java FX etc. And like this co…

microsoft's antipairacy raid You need to know the reasans to shift to linux or any other open sou

This article is obtained from
You need to know the reasans to shift to linux or any other open source Operating systems,Aren't you?
Read the following....
comment your thoughts. :-)

In a bid to throttle organized piracy and in retaliation to drop in revenues (or rather, failure in achieving targeted sales) from software sales in Kerala, Microsoft Corporation launched aggressive anti-piracy raids in computer assembling stores in Trivandrum, Kollam and Thrissur districts in Kerala. This we think is a right time for those of you who are worried about using pirated software to shell out large chunks of money to buy licensed software or better SWITCH TO UBUNTU :).

At least in Trivandrum the raids were conducted in not-so prominent stores to not really irritate the major players but at the same time give a good warning to everybody in the market. The raids were no joke either. Microsoft officials were accompanied by local police during their Anti-piracy raid. Cases un…
